The Willamette Valley Chapter of the Construction Specifications Institute invites you to participate in its 2011 Northwest Region Conference this coming June 15 - 18 right here in Eugene! This is an excellent opportunity to obtain continuing education units (up to 10.5 credits in AIA HSW), as well as a great chance to become inspired, be a better leader, and equip yourself to thrive in the diverse world we do business in every day.
The theme is “Diversity in the Workplace.” Explore the challenges and opportunities presented by our differences—cultural, ethnic, experiential, generational, and gender. There will be a rich collection of seminars covering leadership, practice, technical, and cultural topics. Over 30 product manufacturers and service firms will exhibit the latest construction systems. Plus, there’ll be tours of the new Matthew Knight Arena and Jaqua Center for Student Athletes, a Saturday wine tasting tour, region awards banquet, networking, and more.
For those of you unfamiliar with the Construction Specifications Institute, the organization’s mission is to advance building information management and education of project teams to improve facility performance. It is a national association of more than 13,000 specifiers, architects, engineers, contractors, facility managers, product representatives, manufacturers, owners, and others dedicated to improving the communication of construction information.
As a CSI member and past-president of the Willamette Valley Chapter, I can personally attest to the many benefits that’ll accrue if you attend the CSI Northwest Region Conference. You don’t have to be a member of CSI to participate in the 2011 event. I guarantee you’ll be made to feel welcome by some of the friendliest folks in the construction industry you’ll find anywhere!
